Is it bad to go from full-time to part-time?

I have a potential job opportunity that is part-time. I’ve worked full-time my entire adult life, but if this new job offers me similar pay and shorter hours with comparable benefits it feels like a no-brainer. I’m changing industries entirely and this new job could be a way to gain experience in the field and get my foot in the door.

Does it look bad on a resume to go from a full-time worker to a part-time worker? I feel as long as it’s a career field “upgrade” and I am gaining experience my hours per week shouldn’t matter, but it feels strange to think about working less than 40 hours a week.
